WWE RAW REPORT: A CHANGE TO THE TLC MATCH, MORE MATCHES FOR SUNDAY, TAG TITLE MATCH, STEEL CAGE MATCH, HOW DOES FINN COUNTER LAST WEEK'S WYATT SEGMENT

By Richard Trionfo on 2017-10-16 23:04:00

Last week, we saw the return of the Shield.  What will happen tonight as we are now less than a week until TLC.  Tonight, Roman Reigns faces Braun Strowman in a steel cage.

We are in Portland, Oregon and your announcers are Michael Cole, Corey Graves, and Booker T.

There are tables, ladders, and chairs on the stage because of Sunday.

Kurt Angle makes his way to the ring.

Kurt welcomes everyone to Raw.  He says it is safe to say that the Shield is back together.  Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, and Dean Ambrose will face Miz, Sheamus, Cesaro, and Braun Strowman on Sunday, but Kurt says he wants to focus on tonight.

The Shield make their way through the crowd and they are in their vintage attire.

Roman takes the mic and he says when the Hounds come to the ring, you have two choices.  You get out of their yard or they kick your ass.

Seth tells Roman to calm down and he says it feels good to be out here.  It is amazing how things come full circle.  Their first match was five years ago at TLC and they dominated.  Every single night after that, when they were together, they dominated.

Then one day, that all went away.  Seth says he is proud to stand here, five years later in this ring with his brothers because The Shield is back and better than ever.  

Dean mentions tables, ladders, and chairs.  Thousands of pounds of steel surround the ring.  That is not why Miz, The Bar, and Braun Strowman should be afraid.  The battle lines are drawn and they will be facing the masters.  No one divides and conquers better than the Shield.  There is no force on Earth more powerful than the Shield.  Dean says maybe he got a little ahead of himself when he said they could face four, five, or six people, but he would say the same thing.  They don't care.  Dean tells them to come out so they can throw down in Portland.

Braun Strowman's music plays and he is joined by Miz, Cesaro, Sheamus, and Curtis Axel.

Kurt tells everyone that the TLC match will not happen tonight.  Kurt tells Sheamus and Cesaro if they want their title match, don't move.  He tells Braun Strowman if he wants his steel cage match, don't move.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Elias is in the ring with Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson.  Elias wants to know who wants to walk with Elias.  Elias says that is too bad because he found two Good Brothers to walk with him.  Elias says he is freedom and he wants everyone to be quiet.

Karl interrupts and he asks if Gallows and he can tune up their vocal chords.  

Karl starts singing the Honky Tonk Man's theme.  

Elias says that was not too bad.  Elias brings up their song for Jason Jordan.  Elias wants everyone to absorb the words because he says this might be his best song.

Elias sings "Jason" and Gallows and Anderson sing "Is a Nerd"

Jason Jordan, Titus O'Neil, and Apollo Crews make their way to the ring for their match.

We are back with an Asuka video package.

Renee Young is with Emma and Emma says she is sick of hearing about Asuka.  Emma reminds us that she started the Women's Revolution.  She beat four of the toughest women in the world and she is a social media superstar.  Emma asks what has Asuka done.

Alexa Bliss stops by and she says she gets it.  Asuka hasn't done anything.  Emma started the women's revolution and she thanks Emma for that.  It is good to see someone who builds up other women instead of running them down.  That is what Mickie did last week when she called her a biscuit butt.  Alexa offers Emma to team with her against Mickie and a partner if she can find one.

Emma accepts the challenge.

Michael Cole compares Emma to Enzo Amore.

We have a video package showcasing the feud between Cedric Alexander and the unit of Jack Gallagher and Brian Kendrick.

Match Number Two:  Cedric Alexander versus Jack Gallagher (with Brian Kendrick)

Kendrick stays in the ring before the match starts so Rich Swann's music plays and he makes his way to the ring and this is a preview of what will happen in the tag team match on Sunday.

Alexander with a springboard clothesline and punches followed by a drop kick that sends Gallagher to the floor.  Kendrick gets on the apron to distract Alexander and Swann pulls Kendrick off the apron.  Gallagher attacks Alexander from behind and punches Cedric.  Gallagher rakes the eyes with his boots and then he applies a rear chin lock and uses the leg for a hammer lock.  Alexander with punches and an uppercut but Gallagher with a body block and drop kick.  Gallagher with kicks to the chest and then he sends Alexander to the mat.  Gallagher with another round kick to the chest.

Gallagher works on the neck.  Gallagher with more kicks but Alexander blocks a kick and connects with a back elbow and then Cedric with a handspring round kick.  Kendrick grabs Cedric's leg when the referee deals with Gallagher.  Swann takes care of Alexander and Cedric with a Lumbar Check for the three count.
